I'll assist in that, Elder. Also, some really good shots can be pulled of the Rubicon mainpage as well. Just go digging in their resources for the images used in the slideshow that plays at the top of the page. I've uploaded the pics from the Rubicon site to a Rubicon subfolder. They look a bit sma...

I took some EternalX screenshots a while ago. I've added them to a sub-gallery. I'll try to add some Rubicon captures some time this week.

Welcome...(?back) Elderman. Thank you for the wealth of font knowledge you've provided. Thanks, and no problem. There's always loads of stuff available through google. I've been around for a while in a low key way. I'm a big fan of Marathon so when I have something to contribute, I'm glad to chip i...

If I could just get a hold of those fonts... They'd look great for menus and in-game signs. Honestly, I can't even get a hold of the original Courier font! It's all Courier New or whatnot. There's a thread about the Marathon fonts on the story board from 2004. In a post there, someone suggests copy...

6, if someone could direct me to a free screen capture application for OS X, that has movie recording capabilities without extremely low frame rate and which records sound as well, I will be able to make a preview movie for you. I would really like to. SnapsProX , from Ambrosia Software, is the bes...

I'm playing through EternalX again and just finished the 1.0 version of Heart of Fusion. I really like the way you changed the level from FC5, Forrest. All the drones in the core make a lot of sense, and so does making it an enclosed room (unfortunately at the cost of a nice view of Tau Ceti). Final...

I don't mind the loops at all, especially since I really enjoyed them from a story-telling point of view. I really think it would be friendly to give players some warning, though. Eternal should have a readme, anyway, and Forrest could add a sentence like "This is a time-travel story, and if you go ...

Both r and n are sonorant consonants, so it's quite easy to make them syllabic nuclei. W, too, for that matter, if the apostrophe is to be taken as a stop. I'm lazy and pronounce it with only five syllables: "Wr-kn-ca-cn-ter" Do you say the 'k' and the 'c' differently? My thing with W'rkncacnter is...

For what it's worth, probably not much, I think Pfhorrest gave the best pronounciation guide for Phfor. To wit: It an affricative sound made by combining a unvoiced, unaspirated, bilabial plosive ('p') with an an unvoiced, aspirated, labiodental fricative ('fh'). And though any normal english speake...

It's funny, both these reviewers criticize the game for features I really enjoy. I like it that the levels are sometimes hard to figure out. Of course, sometimes I spent ages yelling at my computer: 'what else am I supposed to do!' But I always got out of the level eventually and meantime I enjoyed ...

Hello all, Marathon 2 came out during my second year of high school and I remember a handful of more technically minded friends spend hours setting up LAN games in the computer cluster. We only had a couple of registration codes between us. Maybe that's why the games crashed so often. I moved a away...
